Now that the Shock have the Western Division wrapped up, the team has a few days to think about something else it's never done before: play on national TV.

Shock home games have been shown locally in Eastern Washington for several years now. But when they travel to Iowa Friday night to take on the Barnstormers, it will mark the first time the Shock have played before a truly national audience. Being nationwide will give arena football fans the first real chance to see the No. 2 team - formerly the No. 1 team - in action.

Iowa is currently third in the Midwest Division with a 6-7 record. Last week they lost to Oklahoma City.

Friday's game gets underway at 5:05 p.m. (PT) on NFL Network (on DirecTV).
